Slide 1: DIEP Flap Breast Reconstruction – An Effective Surgical Procedure Houston Plastic Surgery Breast Augmentation Houston Houston Plastic Surgeon Breast Augmentation Houston Breast cancer can have an immense impact on the lives of women, especially when they have to undergo Mastectomy. They face both physical and mental trauma after the surgery. However, now this can be overcome by undergoing DIEP flap breast reconstruction. It is an effective surgical procedure which has already gained popularity due to its multifarious benefits. DIEP FLAP Technique – Recreates a Seemingly Natural Breast Deep Inferior Epigastric Perforator (DIEP), also known as ‘free flap’ is the autologous tissue taken from the patient’s abdominal region for breast reconstruction. It consists of the skin, the fat layers, deep inferior epigastric artery and vein along with its perforators. Plastic surgeons remove the flap and introduce it to the region of the chest where the breast is supposed to be located. To ensure proper blood supply to the breast, the inferior epigastric blood vessels are connected to those in the chest using a microscope. The abdominal area from where the flap was harvested is sutured. Signs of surgical intervention in this region don’t remain prominent as the incisions are made between the folds. After the breast reconstruction surgery, the plastic surgeon would augment the nipple and tattoo the region to create the areola.
Slide 2: Advantages of DIEP FLAP Breast Reconstruction • It can follow a mastectomy • No removal or injury to the abdominal muscles • Maintains a natural breast with symmetrical shape, consistency and volume • No breast implant is required • Shorter recovery time when compared to other techniques • High rate of success • Tolerable pain and discomfort Proficient Houston Plastic Surgeon – A Must for Successful Surgery Though DIEP flap breast reconstruction is an effective surgical procedure, not all plastic surgeons may have the required expertise to perform the surgery. But there are quite a few experienced surgeons proficient in the new technique. It is best that one makes the most out of the consultation by asking questions regarding the procedure. It is also important to check out the plastic surgeon’s credentials and experience to ensure that you are entrusting yourself to a reliable surgeon.
